Wow, you did it! It looks nice. I can't watch the video at work. :(

M-Cat said...

BLUE!!! YESSSSSS..... in the Yankee blue family.

Splenda and I love the car! Well done dude!
Can I ride in the back and watch an annoying movie? Maybe sing along with the songs?

Carrie Stuart said...

Wow, it looks great! Now you need to plan a new adventure to break-in the blue one, STAT!

Cheeseboy said...

Okay, CONGRATULATIONS.

We have 2, that's right TWO Hynundais. We love them. They have been great cars. They are like Hondas but cheaper. I am sure you will love yours.

Also, I knew they could get the price you wanted.

Should have picked red though.

Liked the background music. Nice touch

Stef said...

Out with the old, in with the new. I hope your experience was better than mine have been in the past. Looks like a nice car. Enjoy.

Mamma has spoken said...

OOO a DVD player in the back, are you telling us something? It does look like a wonderful car. Love the color!

Claire said...

That was awesome!
I kind of felt sad for your old car.
It made me feel bad for all my old cars..and awkward because I give emotions to inanimate objects.
I dig the new car, my SIL & uncle both have one & love them.
The inside looks a tiny bit like our (new-ish) car, fabulous!
Congrats on the new wheels, will you name it? (dead serious)

Trevor said...

FANCY!!! I like it too! So did I miss what happened with the letter? Is this the vehicle you spoke about, or is this a different place you bought it at?

T said...

I love leather seats - the BEST for messy kids! Not the best in 110 degree weather, but we make sacrifices :)

Kelly said...

Congratulations!

Amy said...

Congrats! You take the coolest pictures....the details and all. Love it!

Hope your next car takes you on many more adventures!

tiburon said...

CONGRATS!!! I knew you could do it! Can't wait to see it in person next week :)

Natasha said...

Wow! Congrats! Very nice. Sad to see the little red CR-V gone, but moving on is good. Cool that is has a DVD player. And the music on the video was a nice touch. :)

Shauna_Rae said...

I'm excited for you! I LOVE the pictures that you took documenting your purchase!

Crustacean Queen said...

Looking at the title I thought this was a UofU vs BYU post...it's much better. LOVE the new car!

MBGITWWR said...

You may think I'm joking, but there came a moment when I actually became a little verklempt. Congrats! Enjoy the new wheels and remember the old wheels with fond memories. :)

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

I bet you’re relieved. Gotta love that new car smell in the morning. It smells like victory!

Richard & Natalie said...

Congrats on your new BLUE baby. I love the color. May you two have many years of adventures together.

Rachel said...

Awesome! I'm so glad you went with the leather seats and the DVD player. When you're hauling The Native's around they'll be entertained AND easy clean up for you after!

You're the best uncle ever!!

Farscaper said...

Great intro to the new addition. Beautiful car! You look so happy sitting in it. I can see the gears turning coming up with plans to introduce it to the world you love.

It's always hard saying Good Bye to your "baby". I know my vehicles so well. I know all their moans and groans. Then I move on to a new one and feel like I'm cheating on my old car. LOL!

I'm now on my 6th vehicle. It does get easier. (In case you're wondering why so many cars.. I tend to get my hands on them when they have only a few years left. I drive them until they're dead or our family grows and we need more seats).

Shannon said...

Congratulations Mr. Z :-).

imbeingheldhostage said...

I am giggling thinking about the sales people watching you from the showroom ;-) And WHERE were the smashed crackers and juice stains in the back seat of your old car?

Congrats on your new car!!!

Kalei's Best Friend said...

OMG!, love it.. my gf has one and it runs like a dream!. Guess that letter did some good?

Lori said...

I love that you took all these photos of yourself buying a new car. That's an event!

Did you get a good deal?

Linn said...

I seriously whistled out loud when you showed your new car. I like. Fine job choosing and enjoy every second!

tammy said...

First off, sorry for telling you this, but you are just so dang cute. I am a sentimental fool...I almost teared up when you left your other car sitting there. Great choice with the new one. Have fun driving it around!!

Mindee@ourfrontdoor said...

mmmmmmm . . . I bet it smells good too! Congrats!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Oh, I love it!

And I loved the sad farewell music that was playing in the background of your video. LOL!

But I'm digging the new blue. I can almost smell "new car" smell now.

Connie said...

I thought your 10 year old car was your new one! You've taken good care of it. (Now I'm sounding like a grandma!)
Congrats! The video was awesome! Be sure to give us the scoop!

Make Do and Mend said...

Wow! Nice wheels. I have to say I was a bit shocked to find a Honda owner going for something else. We are a Honda family. But you just never know.

mywest said...

Can't wait for my first trip in it...of course I will be in the back watching a movie...

Powdered Toast Man said...

I was wondering what you were going to get. It is sad to say goodbye to a vehicle.

That was a great vlog by the way. Many people don't know what to say in a vlog but that was well done. I think the music gave it a little extra.

Corine said...

Nice car... Congrats!!! :D Apparently they were responsive to the letter; you know what they say, the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Way to go! ;) PS Nice tie, too. :)

Marnie said...

Nice wheels! I'm glad you got your car.

Ally said...

Part of me felt sad for you saying goodbye to your old car, wow, 10 years is a long time! Then I felt excited for you, then I felt sad again because I have a 2010 CR-V and I wished you liked it and got one too. I love mine, but that's me being selfish. Happy new Hyundai.

Omgirl said...

Did you just buy a minivan??

Just kidding.

Yancy said...

I didn't realize you had gotten the new car when I spoke to you on the phone the other day. Awesome!

I guess that's what I get by being so busy at work that I'm only know getting caught up on some outstanding blog reading.

I'm diggin' the new wheels.

LauraB said...

Yay for the Santa Fe! The search is over. Here's to seeing a streak of blue and a satisfied smile on the streets of Provo.

Siggy said...

When do I get to go for a spin?!?
